Originally developed by Solspace.

Repeet allows the user to simulate repeating events. When used in a template, Repeet tags display EE weblog entries as though they repeat at an interval set by the author. The repeating effect is only simulated; the EE database is not modified in any way.

Repeet works with normal weblog entries. By default it looks at three things: the entry’s entry date, its expiration date, and a repeat interval specified by using a custom field. Repeet will then display the entry as often as necessary according to those parameters, beginning from the entry date and ending on or by the expiration date, as appropriate. Repeet looks not only at the entry and expiration dates, but also their times. The times specify what time the entry begins and ends. Simple enough, right?

Repeet also includes the powerful abilities to specify dates using two other important custom fields. The first is an “include dates” field. The user can enter custom event dates in this field for those events that don’t necessarily occur at regular intervals, and therefore cannot use the repeat interval field. By default the entry will occur at the entry’s normal start and end times (i.e. the times set in the entry date and expiration date), but those times, too, can be customized. Furthermore, the user can specify date ranges in this field, giving the user all sorts of flexibility.

The last custom field is an “exclude dates” field. This field can be used to “exclude” certain dates. For example, say an entry is set to repeat at regular, two week intervals. But this year that means the entry will fall on Christmas Day, and you don’t want that to happen. No problem! Just enter the date you want to exclude, and your entry won’t show up on that day. In this example you would enter “12/25/2006” (or maybe 2006-12-25, if you prefer).
